Happiest moment in my life was..The moment each of my three children was born – I guess that’s three happiest moments.

Favorite Book – “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand
I’d jump at the chance to…take a year off and travel around the world.
Best part of the day – when I have dinner at home and we all go around the table and tell the best part of our day.
Favorite place to be other than home & work: Flying down a ski hill with my son and daughter yelling “cowabunga.” They say I embarrass them.
Anything else you want viewers to know about you? I really love what I do. I love to read, I’m naturally curious and I love to write. When all that comes together and I can help someone – it is a wonderful thing.
